Will we have single or multi-talent requiring profession? Which professions will have the biggest impact for the labor market and to society  in the future? Or are we thinking of professions with our old terms?

Join 6th‭ ‬Global Future Center Summit Copenhagen‭ + ‬Malmo‭ + ‬Lund‭ 6-8th May 2018!

The theme of this Summit is Bridges: Co-Creating Impact Across Borders.

In this nomadic, three-day prototyping Lab, we will visit and experience several world class Future Centers and Innovation Centers to explore and co-create new ways to drive impact in diverse settings, using insights and learnings from the places we visit, the Future Center operating principles, and the multi-intelligence that you and other participants bring.

The Summit is like a pop-up prototyping lab, testing new ways of thinking and working, using real world challenges as an agenda, and real world locations as our playing field. Themes we expect to explore include:

  • How to leverage cross-cultural diversity, creativity and passion for societal change
  • How to use a visioning process to bring 2050 up close and personal
  • How to orchestrate cross border collaboration to deal with boundary-spanning issues
  • Wise places: How to create 3rdgeneration Future Centers which put knowledge into practice and strive to achieve wisdom

Each Future Center Summit is a journey, and for the first time this Future Center Summit will be a cross-border journey both geographically and metaphorically.

The relationship between fear of failure and entrepreneurs’ well-being examined through procrastination in Master’s thesis by Kasper Suomalainen

Master’s thesis, Kasper Suomalainen, Aalto University School of Business, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management, Fall 2017

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this thesis is to examine fear of failure, procrastination and wellbeing in entrepreneurs by studying the relationship between the variables through quantitative research methods. This paper focuses on (1) defining and scoping procrastination and fear of failure and how these relate to well-being, (2) forming 3 hypotheses based on existing literature, and (3) finding out how fear of failure, procrastination and well-being interact with one another. This was done through surveying 71 entrepreneurs through a questionnaire.

Kasper Suomalainen acted as the Director of Community at Startup Sauna 2016-2018. www.linkedin.com /in/kaspersuomalainen/

The study found out that (1) fear of failure is negatively related to subjective wellbeing, (2) fear of failure is positively related to procrastination, and (3) procrastination does not moderate the relationship between fear of failure and subjective well-being in a statistically significant way.

The biggest limitation in this domain is that existing literature involves multiple perspectives, definitions and measures of the construct of fear of failure, and the fact that procrastination is only measured on a general level with no real categorization.

TIIVISTELMÄ: Tämän gradutyön tarkoitus on tutkia epäonnistumisen pelkoa, viivyttelyä (procrastination) sekä hyvinvointia yrittäjissä analysoimalla näiden muuttujien keskenäisiä suhteita kvantitatiivisesti. Työ keskittyy (1) määrittelemällä epäonnistumisen pelon ja viivyttelyn liittämällä nämä hyvinvointiin, (2) kolmen hypoteesin muodostaminen olemmassaolevan kirjallisuuden pohjalta ja (3) tutkimalla miten epäonnistumisen pelko, viivyttely sekä hyvinvointi vaikuttavat toisiinsa. Tämä tehtiin kvantitatiivisen tutkimuksen kautta johon osallistui 71 suomalaista yrittäjää.

Tutkimuksen aikana selvisi, että (1) epäonnistumisen pelolla on negatiivinen vaikutus hyvinvointiin, (2) epäonnistumisen pelolla on positiivinen korrelaatio viivyttelyn kanssa ja (3) viivyttely ei moderoi epäonnistumisen pelon ja subjektiivisen hyvinvoinnin suhdetta tilastollisesti merkitsevästi.

Suurin haaste tutkimuksen saralla on se, että epäonnistumisen pelkoa tutkitaan monesta eri perspektiivistä eri määritelmillä ja mittareilla, ja viivyttelyä tutkitaan yleisellä tasolla ilman kategorisointia.
